    Yes, thank you. Many skaters have returned from prior seasons and a few new
    skaters. There is still space for both adults and kids for all the classes and
    freestyle ice times.
    The Brattleboro rink is where I started to take lessons. The adult classes are
    always filled with many supportive skaters. I travel to skate in the summer
    months and no matter where I go I continue be reminded of how positive and
    encouraging the people at this rink are. One of the most positive and helpful
    environments around. Fun positive activity...

    I just returned from one of the adult public skates and am quite impressed with
    how many adults were there. Mind you I did not take my first skate lesson either
    just before I turned forty or at forty. Ice skating has been the most available
    winter sport to partake in, for me. With the unpredictable weather over the
    winter months in the past ten plus years, ice skating is always the reliable
    Anyway, thank you Chris for asking. Thursdays basic skills and bridge class is
    filing up any and all interested are welcome to come and see what it's all about.
    Registration forms are still available on line at the club web site or at the rink.
